This is a Detail of a vision of Goddess Lakshmi, or Sri Devi, the Goddess of Fortune, Wealth, Abundance and Beauty. All eight forms of Wealth - Ashta-Lakshmi - come from her. Like Aphrodite and Venus she is born from the ocean. Here she rises from the waves on her symbol, the lotus, and holds her hand in the Blessing position, showering wealth and granting all the wishes of her devotees.
